He ignores it and proposes to her anyhow. She gradually comes to terms with it. Mansi returns to India after winning an award in Canada to plan for their wedding. After Jagmohan realises his error and apologises, he and Tara make amends.

Manav and Mansi are finally married, with the blessings of Jagmohan and Tara. As the movie finishes, the Mehtas take a family photo after the wedding.

The Soundtrack of the movie-

The movie’s soundtrack was created by A. R. Rahman, while the lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi. On June 12, 1999, the soundtrack was released, and this was a huge critical and economic success. Ghai said during a press conference, “I give composer A.R.Rahman credit for the film’s title. This film is a romance, and I could have called it anything – Dil, Pyaar, or Hum Bhaag Gaye – but it was Rahman’s presence in the film that inspired me to title it Taal. Music is Taal, and Taal is music. A.R.Rahman and Anand Bakshi deserve all of the credit. Many nights were spent awake by Rahman, but after hearing the songs, I thought it was all worth it.”
